Font lock operates on narrowed region all the time. And region is
narrowed to the chunk. I also syntactically comment everything before
the chunk. This improves C-like modes which disregard a lot of newer
emacs conventions like font-lock-dont-widen.

Can you share text properties per region? That is in latex block use
properties from latex-mode in *all* the buffers? If so that might be
interesting, but it comes very closely to what I have done with indirect
Polymode is not hardwired with indirect buffers. If your
"linked-buffers" allow a better alternative, I would be happy to modify
polymode to use linked-buffers instead.

Looking forward to that.

I thought #_() is a block comment. Is there a standard syntax for
clojure literate programming?

Markdown works well with polymode. It works for lisp. It works with
clojure-mode also, not so much with cider for evaluation. That should be
fixable. I am interested in developing for clojure and I would be happy
to add support for clojure literate programming and inline
